Seika "Father of Modern Confucianism" Fujiwara
Birth: 1561
Death: 1619

Neo-Confucian scholar and author in the early Edo Period (1603-1868). A native of Harima, Hyogo Prefecture, Fujiwara came to Kyoto to become a priest of Shokoku-ji Temple. Later, he systematized Confucianism in his own way and established the "Kyogaku-ha School," where such prominent scholars as Hayashi Razan and Matsunaga Sekigo were educated. Thus, Fujiwara became recognized as the "Father of the Modern Confucianism" in Japan. Without serving any feudal lord, he lived in seclusion at Ichihara in the northern part of Kyoto. His books include "Chiyomotogusa" and "Shishogokyo Wakun." (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)
